How to grow long, healthy hair

I’ve been growing my hair for about 3 years now and I just wanted to share the things i’ve been doing that I think has helped me grow my long, lush locks.


Drinking water everyday is probably the most important thing you can do to grow healthy hair. In order to keep your hair and skin healthy it needs to be full of moisture and the most effective way to do that is to drink lots and lots and lots of water.


I take a vitamin called ‘hair skin nails’ that I get from Holland and Barrett, which is full of lots of goodies to help keep them healthy. I saw a slight difference but I found also combining it with a multivitamin (specifically the Healthy start vitamins for women) just gave it a boost and I really noticed the effects. My hair is softer, shinier, and just overall looks and feels better.


I suppose you know by now but split ends are a hair growers worst enemy, so getting those snipped off is a must if you want to get long hair. I dont get my hair cut at a salon I cut it myself and have done for about 4-5 years now. I am so scared that they will cut too much off and ill be back to square one. I probably cut my hair about every 3-4 months and I only cut the bare minimum off like literally the split ends. If your not used to cutting your own hair then get it done by someone who knows what they are doing. I don’t recommend just hacking away at your hair but if you feel confident in doing it yourself, then make sure to use the correct tools and do your research by watching videos on how to cut your hair. I recommend watching Bebexo’s video its pretty fool proof https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykkLUsJPdtk


Keeping your hair conditioned is so important so I like to apply a hair mask once a week. I like to use coconut oil because it has so many benefits and its my all time favourite. I also like castor oil and you can add little bit of peppermint or rosemary essential oil for a relaxing aromatherapy hair treatment. I like to do this on a sunday when I know for definate there’s no chance of the postman or delivery man catching me with a head full of oil and a face mask (its happened before) also I can keep it on all day then wash my hair in the evening and its clean and fresh to start the week.


For me this was a game changer. When I make the effort and can actually remember (coz ive got a memory worse than a goldfish!) I tip my head upside down and massage my scalp for about 4 minutes. This increases blood flow which stimulates hair growth. I did a small experiment once testing out this method. I measured the length of my hair, then over the course of 2 weeks I massaged my head every other night before bed for 4 minutes. At the end of the 2 weeks I measured my hair again and it had grown an inch and a half! IN JUST 2 WEEKS!! I highly suggest trying this experiment for yourself if you are trying to grow your hair to see if it works for you.

As important as it is to have a healthy diet and it would probably help towards hair growth. I would be a hypocrite if I told you to eat more healthy food to grow your hair. My diet isnt the best so it really wouldn’t be right of me to tell you to do something that I dont do myself.

Just saying.

I really hope this gave you some information and helps towards growing your lovely lengths.

Tips for coloring your hair

So i’ve recently coloured my a hair dusky dark pink/ultra violet shade and I am in love with it!

I loved the idea of having brightly coloured hair or just a colour that wasn’t brown,

but always had these niggling thoughts at the back of my mind …….

It wont suit me

The bleach will ruin my hair

I might mess it up

What will people think

Everyone will look at me

BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!!

So heres a few things I did to make the process of a colour change easier on my hair and my fear of the ‘ordinary’ thinking minds of others

  1. I stopped thinking about other peoples opinions

People will always have an opinion on you or what you’re doing but that’s all they are OPINIONS. I’ve recently come to learn that you should never let other peoples opinions or feelings of you stop you from being yourself.

2. I stopped putting myself down

I came to the conclusion that if all these other people can have fun coloured hair then why cant I? We can be our own worst critics, and sometimes you just need to tell yourself to shut up and go with it. So I did.

3. I added the colour gradually over time

I feel this one is important in 2 ways

A. Bleaching or lifting can be really harsh on your hair so I did mine gradually over a few months and gave it some love by applying a moisture rich mask/oil now and again keeping it as healthy as I could. I like using castor or coconut oil as they are so good for your hair.

B. I feel that dramatically going from one colour to another can be bit of a shock to the system and then you may not like the sudden change, so by doing it gradually you get a feel of what its going to look like and then can decide if you want to continue on or change up the colour.

This is the ‘warm brown’ colour I was for about 8-9 years

And this was after my 1st time colouring as you can see there is very little colour I was just concentrating on keeping it healthy

This is the rose gold I achieved

When I dyed the ends purple.

You can watch this video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1OR2XlvaM8

Then I took the plunge and did it

and you can watch the video to how I achieved this colour here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKeg9fXxYFY&t=4s

 

So im going to end this post with some friendly advice and a little disclaimer

If you are thinking of dying your hair yourself, make sure you do your research and get as much advice as possible on techniques and products and always follow the instructions given. You could also get advice from someone that works in a salon and they can also advise you on a colour that best suits you.

Make sure you give yourself sometime to think about it to make sure its what you really want.

If your doing a dramatic change for the 1st time and never coloured your hair yourself then I do advise you to go to a professional it may be a lot more expensive than a DIY job but at least you know your hair will turn out good

Ive been colouring my own hair for about 12 years now so I have experience and I know how my hair will react to the products

Admittedly my partner isn’t the biggest fan of the colour of my hair, but I am obsessed with it and it makes me happy. Even though I love him and I obviously care what he thinks, if I want to do something that I know will make me happy im going to do it.

Never let anyone stop you from being you

MY 1ST EVER BLOG!!!! EVER!!!!

Well hello there and welcome to my 1st ever blog! im new to this so bear with….

My name is Nadine I am 30 years young! I refuse to grow up!
I am from South Wales in the UK. I live with my fiance and our 3 children.
(I feel like i’m auditioning for a game show)
I LOVE anything creative, literally anything!
I get so much inspiration from music, photographs and colours. My mind is open to every possibility around me which means my imaginative streak comes easy, but I will admit that sometimes it’s hard to have a firm opinion on somethings.
There’s always a positive to be found (my motto)
I started making all sorts of Youtube videos around 2010 and my love for make-up, hair and beauty just grew, so now thats my focus on my channel. I completed a 2 year beauty therapy course at college, but knew I never wanted to work in a salon or even free lance it was just an interest I had, One of many!
This is my space I can let all my different aspects of creativity flow as being a full-time mother for the past 11 years it kind of took a back seat. So now im ready to throw my artistic confetti all over the place! Be careful there’s glitter EVERYWHERE!

Be good kids
